These little balls of goodness will have you addicted at first bite. They are deceivingly delicious, leaving you wonder how they could possibly be healthy. If that wasn’t enough, they’re quick and fun to whip up – which is lucky because they won’t last long!
In this variation I added a little cayenne pepper. If you’re a fan of the chilli-dark chocolate flavour combo, then I highly recommend it. I added about half a teaspoon of cayenne, but feel free to add to taste ;)

1/2 cup dates, approximately 12 (dates are not low FODMAP)
100g desiccated coconut
1 tbsp coconut oil
4 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tbsp water
1 tsp cinnamon
Optional add ins
Mix all the ingredients in a food processor for 2-3 minutes or until the dough comes together into a ball. Place the mixture in the fridge for about 10 minutes, then form 15 small round truffles with your hands. Roll the truffles in cocoa powder, desiccated coconut or even finely chopped nuts. Keep refrigerated – they taste best chilled.
